as an effective measure, criticism for his strit ji is legitimate because obama administration is different than the bush administration. in this area. >> the president has not described this as a war on terrorism that. is because terrorism is but a tactic. a means to an end. describing our efforts as a global war plays into the warped narrative al qaeda prop investigates. >> now, the brennan's sturn not playing well with the folk as tempted bombing of the airliner is very bad news for the obama administration. that is a memo. now, top story tonight. is american security good enough? joining us from washington is nut gingrich, speaker of the new online news letter, you can get it on newt.org. >> we can take this a lot of places. i think that president ob yaum has got a problem. you know, if you look at the polling americans are going look. we don't like the obama antiterror strategy. am i wrong? >> well, i think it's deeper than that. the united states has a problem. this is just a political matter you can have one level of concern. but the fact is that we're in a war, and our enemies are clever
talking. when the obama administration decided to treat him as an ordinary criminal, it did so without the input of our nation's top intelligence officials. the director of national intelligence was not consulted. the secretary of defense was not consulted. the secretary of homeland security was not consulted. the director of the national counter-terrorism center was not consulted. they would have explained the importance of gathering all possible intelligence about yemen, where there is a serious threat from terrorists who sites are trained on this nation. that would have explained the critical nature of learning all we could from abdul mutallab, but they were never asked. president obama recently used the phrase that we are at war with terrorists. but unfortunately, his rhetoric does not match the action of his administration. the obama administration appears to have a blind spot when it comes to the war on terrorism, and because of that blindness, this administration cannot see a foreign terrorist even when he stands right in front of them, fresh from an attempt to blow a plane out
for the obama administration as most americans want the military to handle the latest captured terrorists. >> why not treat them as an enemy combatant? use the interrogation techniques and try to get more information? >> we'll have is a number of reports on america's security in the age of obama. >> be a great example to the world. >> brit hume weighing in on the tiger woods fiasco with some religious advice. mr. hume will be here. >> bernie goldberg has been watching diane sawyer's anchor debut and the new team at "good morning america." bernie has some thoughts. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >>> hi, i'm bill o'reilley. thanks for watching the first factor of the new decade. happy new year. hope you had a nice break. unfortunately we're back to reality and it's not pretty. america's national security is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. president obama's christmas could not have been calm after that loan from nigeria tried to blow up a northwest jet liner as it approached detroit. because the obama administration change
rescue of general motors and chrysler, was the major domestic policy success of the obama administration so far. they came in with a set of clear objectives. they did not overreach. they got bipartisan support, including from senator corker of tennessee, who had very specific conditions for supporting a bailout, and they got in and out. it cost us $100 billion, which is a lot of money, but on the other hand, so far they seem to have righted the ship. tavis: i want to come back to that notion and what you mean, but anywhere else on the global i have made this point before, anywhere else on the globe where you have just described as a success for the obama administration would be called socialism anywhere else. >> that is probably true. look, the truth is no one wanted the old mobile bailout, not even the obama administration. this was not a preordained plan. the first money that went to detroit came from george w. bush, just enough moneyin december of tutus- of 2008 to get through the change of administration, leaving it up to the obama administration to handle the problem. basically, no
's the obama administration's position. but, bob, i think, you know, when you think about what we're going to do, where these, you know, 198 or so people are going to go, all accounts now are pointing to thompson, illinois. but the democrats in congress, you know, they haven't been too keen on giving obama $150 million could bring those people here. >> schieffer: it's one of the questions that really went unanswered during the presidential campaign. because both of the candidates, barack obama and john mccain, said we need to close guantanamo. because they both said that, we all forgot to ask the next question: how? and that is what they're dealing with now. >> let's face it. closing guantanamo is going to be nothing more than a change of address for the detainees because they still have the procedure of indefinite detention. for people you can't take to court because the evidence won't stand up in court for any number of reasons. but you consider too dangerous to release. that was one of the greatest criticisms of the bush administration's policy on guantanamo. and that apparently is not
enriched uranium. the idea was to make sure it cannot produce nuclear weapons. the obama administration has threatened tougher sanctions against iran if it ds not comply with western demands. the u.s. would need help from russia and china to make any such sanctions effective. >>> a new report from the united nations on afghanistan reveals how difficult it will be for president hamid karzai to make good on his promise to crack down on rampant corruption in that country. the u.n. office on drugs and crime says $2.5 billion in bribes were paid to public officials over the past 12 months. those bribes added up to almost a quarter of afghanistan's gross domestic product. one person in two in afghanistan had to pay at least one kickback in the last year. >>> corruption, you may recall, is also a big issue in china. today a former judge on china's highest court was sentenced to life in prison for accepting almost $600,000 in bribes. but he's hardly alone. china's official anti-corruption commission said that 106,000 officials were found guilty of corruption last year. last week, the office of the
as to what goes on in the cabin. and of course, the obama administration must have known about all of these and they are trying to keep people calm. and then the response and what are you hearing, if anything, about the handling and the timing? >> look, these changes wouldn't have gone into ee fikt without the white house saying putting them in effect. this hases to do with security, no question about that they didn't react quick enough. at this point, i think we've seen the president come up, he's used very strong language. and mark and lynn, thank you very much. increasingly there is a concern for the united states and the west. >>> the u.s. government closed the embassy siting the possibility of terrorist violence. president obama is insistent for homeland security and counterterrorism. >> i spoke with the ambassador and both this morning as well as last night, there are indications that al qaeda is planning to carry out attacks against suddam. and what we do is take every measure possible to ensure the safety of our diplomats and citizens abroad. the decision was made to work c
of people don't think it's fair is this argument by republicans that say the obama administration is complacent in fighting the war on terror. jim miklaszewski at the pentagon and susan page from "usa today," what do you make of the argument. >> earlier talked about complacency in regard to this christmas day attempted bombing. and they are obviously -- their obviously was complacency at lower levels. you definitely can't accuse obama administration of complacency in the overall war on terror. after all, there have been more predator drone, hail fire missile attacks against taliban and al qaeda targets in pakistan in the first year of the obama administration than the previous five or six years when that technology was available to the bush administration. in fact, if you look back at what was happening in yemen at the time, it was on december 17th when the obama administration ordered the military to launch cruise missile and airstrikes against al qaeda targets inside yemen a week and a day before that failed christmas day airline bombing. so there is no question that the obama a

's got to give in year two of the obama administration? >> i think spend has got to give. we're spending 25% of g.d.p., we're not going to spend our way to economic prosperity, we're scaring the financial markets and making it impossible to do the kinds of things this country needs. >> tom: we saw federal revenues drop significantly in the month of december. what's the end of that trend? >> i'm scared about the outlook for the economy still. this is not going to be a sharp recovery so you cannot count on a quick v-shaped recovery to balance the budget. instead, the real work has to be done on the spending side. get it in shape. >> tom: the c.b.o. is projecting the u.s. economy growing by almost better than 3% in 2010 and 4% by 2011. that's a pretty stiff recovery. >> it's a good recovery, it's not a great recovery. it will still leave the unemployment rate dangerously near 10% one year from today and we're going to see americans suffer for a continued period. >> tom: i've got to ask you about financing this year because you bring up concerns about global markets. clearly, there is still
from the state department's counterterrorism coordinator on theç obama administration's efforts. he was joined by former c.i.a. and f.b.i. dornte terrorism officials, an event hosted by the cato institute. this is almost two hours.çç >> good morning. good morning, class. i want to welcome you to the cato institute's auditorium. i'm jim harper, director of information policy studies here at cato. with my colleague,i] benç free and chris preble, a co-chair of cato's strategic counterterrorism initiative which is made possible by the generosity of the atlantic philanthropies.ç we are very pleased this morning to have an excellent group of experts with us, andç later th morning a top counterterrorism official in the obama administration to address help us see president obama's first year in counterterrorism. a year ago today many of us were here starting the second day of a two-day conference in which we explored terrorism and counterterrorism and worked to shape and predict the obama administration's counterterrorism strategy. you can review that conference. i urge you to do
, beginning with cuba. at the beginning of the obama administration, it really seemed like there was going to be a change in the u.s. policy toward cuba. and yet now i don't hear much. has it stalled? >> the worst thing it has even stalled to where we were post clinton. our policy, u.s. policy toward cuba is the same as we had in the first two years of the bush administration which is to say, under clinton, we had a very liberal licensing agreement for educational and scientific exchange programs. obama hasn't even changed that. what he has done, he's lifted some of the most restricted measures on cuban americans to be able to travel to the island on remittances to visit relatives on the island but we haven't even gone pre-bush. in terms of bilateral relations, there was flirtation if you will. the first raul castro said everything would be on the table. then his big brother fidel came out from the hospital and rose from the hospital bed and said no. we aren't going to discuss political prisoners. we aren't fg to discuss human rights. at that point things pretty much froze. there were some

tells us that faced with louder and louder protests, the obama administration may be forced to move it to another location t.b.a. >> reporter: pledging to bring justice to the victims of 9/11, attorney general eric holder declared that accused mastermind khalid sheikh mohammed would stand trial at the scene of the crime. in a courthouse just blocks away from where the tin towers once stood. >> reporter: but with mounting police cal pressure, the obama administration is considering moving the trial from mat hat tan to a more remoat location. new york officials say president cost more than 200 million dollars a year to secure a half mile zone around the federal courthouse in lower manhattan. up to 3,000 barriers would restrict traffic, sniper teams would be positioned on roof tops and heavily armed police in the streets. >> it would turn the entire lower manhattan area into an occupation zone. they'd be living under martial law. >> reporter: now leaders in both parties have joined michael bloomberg in pressing the white house to reconsider. >> my hope is that the attorney general and
has been used as an experiment so many times. >> in fairness to the obama administration, there has been a lot of pressure. the obama administration has made a couple of changes to policy. tell me what that is. >> the devil is going to be in the details, but we have a huge flood of $100 million. it is going to take a lot more. the devil is going to be in the details about how that is spent. the obama administration announced temporary grants will be granted to haitians who have been in the country since before december 12. what is important to note is he also said any haitians who stepped forth in this country are going to be deported back to haiti. we have a lot of work to do. the passion of americans should rule out as long as we are vocal. >> the way we treat patients is different. >> we do need a more just immigration policy for haitians. it starts with temporary status, but it also goes for allowing haitians to work. when we talk about reform, we have 80 in mind, and so often our conversations leave haiti out, so it is going to be have the, and hopefully the solution. tavis: we
. the year of living dangerously for the obama administration. steve grunman, lauren thompson, pierre thomas and fred downy welcome to the show. >> so for years the impression has been the defense spending is finally going to level off. it was going to go flat at 534 billion, add inflation and $50 billion, and so everybody's expectation that acquisition spending will come under sharp pressure. but the obama administration decided to add $100 billion to the budget that will be submitted to congress next month. that is a heck of a lot of money. there is stimulus obviously affecting their focussing on the industrial base, lauren, how do you manage to do this with the rising deficit. where does it go? >> when you consider the fact that this is the candidate who got the nomination by pledging to pull out of iraq we're headed for an amazingly high level of defense spending. we'll be in the next fiscal year, 2011, will be somewhere around $550 billion in the regular defense budget and somewhere around $150 billion for overseas contingencies. $700 billion, more than george w. bush ever asked for. >>
has just proven to be extremely difficult. so the obama administration wants to put them into civilian courts as much as possible. >> john brennan was asked about that this morning. >> we have an array of tools and we want to maintain flexibly of how we deal with these individuals. let's get the facts on the table, he was arrested on u.s. soil. on a plane in detroit airport. he was talking to people that detained him. and those arrested in other administrations all were charged and tried in criminal court and sentenced. some cases to life in prisonment. just because someone is put in the criminal legal process does not mean we have other opportunities to get information from them. >> let me ask this specifically, after abdulmutallab got lawyered up, did he stop talking? >> i am not going to address before or after he talked with his lawyer. we got information and we continued to have opportunities to do that. as you talk to the lawyers and individuals and they recognize what they are facing as far as the charges, there are opportunities to continue to talk about it. f.b.i. has g4bsome
the former rice president and members of the obama administration just got even uglier. that story straight ahead. >> the obama administration's response to the failed christmas bombing at northwest airlines has a boatload of criticism from the gop including dick cheney who unleashed ott president president. as i watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that president obama is trying to pretend we are not awar. he seems to think if we have a low key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner to kill 14u7b people we are not at war. he seems to think if we get rid of the words war on terror we won't be at war. we are at war and when president obama pretends we aren't it makes us more unsafe. shawn brennan ran to the administration's offense this morning and unloaded on the former gp. >> either the vice president is willfully miss characterizing this president's position in terms of the language uses and actions he has taken or he is looking at the past in either case doesn't bowed well with what the vice president is doing. >>> former chief democratic counsel joul yen
a little about what the international community can do. what role can the obama administration in particular play in that part of the world? >> i actually have addressed this issue in a hearing, addressed the u.s. congress earlier this year. and this is when i really emphasized the need to help bosnia with its constitutional reforms. that attempt was made by the obama administration a couple weeks ago. however, at this point, it is considered by many people to have classmated and to have failed. i'm afraid with the election coming up in bosnia, the best we can hope for is for another attempt of this kind, including especially the obama administration, together with the e.u. happening in 2011. probably not before. >> what do you think the sort of specific difficulties in trying to get constitutional reform? >> well, simply to get an agreement between the political leaders. and i think this is one of the benefits of this, even though it may have been considered a failed process. it is a benefit. and a lesson learned for the international community at how difficult it is going to
are closely communicating with and cooperating with the obama administration. >> in recent years, there have been differences as far as the intelligence assessment of the u.s. government and the israeli government as to how close iran is to actually possessing a nuclear bomb. >> i think we're very closely communicating and cooperating on all of the issues. and our assessments are very similar. >> is your intelligence the same as the u.s. acessment? >> our assessments are very similar. >> there is another story in "the new york times" on the front page about the secret tunnels. take a look behind you, you see the picture, ahmadinejad wearing the hard hat. he visited a tunnel, not necessarily the tunnel where they're having nuclear facilities, but it would be deep underground. does israel have the capability to destroy iranian nuclear facilities in these deep underground tunnels? >> wolf, we're nowhere near that point now. we're focused now on sanctions. not on destroying tunnels. we're focused on getting these sanctions up and running, and to assessing their impact. >> you really believe thes
and then the obama administration did on wall street, although all of us hate it, it was necessary to keep from a total collapse of the world economy. >> pennsylvania governor ed rendell, democrat, former chairman of the democratic national committee and governor rendell, good of you to join us today. thank you. >>> we're looking live right now at timothy geithner who is essentially talking with a couple of folks in the hearing room there as the photographers line up to take his picture. this will be an extremely adversarial hearing in which dwooeter in will be testifying about the bailout of aig and what geithner knew about the efforts when he was at the new york fed to keep some of those details hidden. some very difficult questions for geithner about aig and also what they're calling a back door bailout for goldman sachs which just handed out billions in bonuses. so geithner is on the hot seat. we'll bring you his testimony when it happens. talking with governor rendell about what democrats see as the accomplishments, one of the big failures, of course, health care. a lot of liberal democrat
. >> sure the vice president told my colleague, mike allen, that president obama's administration doesn't truly believe we're at war right now. and i think used the christmas day attack, andrea, to launch this bravado against the obama administration. it does help the administration to have somebody like john brennan, who is a nonpartisan figure, as he mentioned, have served presidents, democrat and republican, to push back against that statement. it has a lot more credibility than one of president obama's political appointees, because he is seen as someone who is a career national security official. >> what about that, pat buchanan? does that deflate the cheney criticism? >> no, i don't think so. i think the administration has been hurt badly for two reasons. the initial response was nonchalant and the system worked and the president is out there in hawaii. that looked bad, a mini katrina. whenever you move to, say, national security and protecting us against terrorism, that is the one issue on which bush and cheney ran stronger than obama and biden, even last fall. and so did mccain.
: okay. we have to take a break here. when we come back, with the obama administration rethinking new york city for 9/11 terror trials, does the president need a reset from the national securisecurity? answers from the blue ribbon panel in a moment.

for the last couple years, from the bush administration into the obama administration. most of the high-level focus of the both governments has been on the wars in yisk and now in afghanistan. now the focus is going back on to the intelligence side, the global as expects of counterterrorism, and finding individuals, of having the appropriate triggers and red flashing lights or red flags as mark said to identify the types of people and types of activity that aren't necessarily in afghanistan or iraq, but could be anywhere globally. that's the shift that's happening now in the counterterrorism business. >> even with that shift and that desire to have new -- or innovative ideas, you have a government in yemen as we saw in afghanistan, and even iraq, reluctant government, reluctant leaders. the prime minister of yemen has already been criticized for saying that he's close with his family members, and protecting his own interests. that's the same message we saw and heard in afghanistan with hamid karzai. these reluctant leaders that we, the united states, need. >> that's exactly right, tamro
israel. the obama administration administration is firing back. >> this something that has to pop up in our lives over an audiotape because he's nothing but a cowardly, murderous thug and terrorist. >> reporter: the audiotape has yet to be authenticated but terrorism experts say it's similar to previous recordings by osama bin laden and that it does suggest another attack could occur within the next 12 months. >> we'll continue to be on the offense against osama bin laden and al qaeda. >> reporter: in the minute-long tape, osama bin laden praises the would-be bomber on christmas day. but terrorism experts say there's no evidence whatsoever to suggest that he had anything to do with abdul mutallab. >> osama bin laden is still a motivating force for jihadists. we have to stay after him. >> reporter: bin laden is still believed to be operating somewhere between between pakistan and afghanistan. karen brown, cbs news new york. >>> now to the rescue operation in haiti. the 24th marine expeditionary unit out of camp lejeune, north carolina launched two osprey unit. this is what an osprey u

the obama administration, the u.s. government, faces real predicaments about how to engage iran in a nondiplomatic manner. what does the u.s. government do next? how does it impose what it says will be tougher economic sanctions if it can't get china to go along? >> well, i think it has to get out of these artificial deadlin. because initially they said the deadline ended december, now they're talking end of january. i think those deadlines are actually becoming a major obstacle. if one is trying to bring china on board, and also to get iran to come to some sort of compromise, clearly there has to be an open-ended negotiation. >> do you think iran is very much worried about a possible military strike, either from israel or the united states? >> i'm sure the iranian government has contingency plans, is concerned about this. but at the moment, and since the elections, there are so many other issues on their plate in terms of addressing the rather large and continuing protests in the streets. the divisions amongst the establishment. the problems of economic reform, so on and so for

to the obama administration's top counterterrorism official john brennan. brennan said today, "we are not going to take any chances." this comes just a day after the head of u.s. central command, general david petraeus, met with yemen's president to talk about increasing terrorism efforts in the country. both the united states and the uk also announced an increase in funds to yemen to combat al qaeda militants there. this is all happening on the very same weekend president obama acknowledged publicly for the first time the connection between al qaeda and yemen and the suspect in that failed christmas bombing attack. in a few minutes we'll have more on the latest news out of yemen. >>> there is a big development this morning in that thanksgiving day murder case in florida. the suspect is now behind bars after five weeks on the run. police arrested paul merhige at a hotel last night in the florida keys. he's accused of killing his twin sisters, his aunt and 56-year-old girl. >> it was a huge relief to know that the monster's in the cage ever since we've come back into the house, i've been in prot

for watching us tonight. will al-qaeda destroy the obama administration? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. some conservatives are saying the president does not take terrorism seriously enough. but that's not the case any longer. yesterday the president was deadly serious about stopping any more terrorist attacks against americans. mr. obama is a smart guy. he knows that he's got three strikes against him now, but he's not out. he is, however, to therring. when a muslim terrorist killed one soldier, wounded another in arkansas, the press pretty much ignored it. then fort hood, the president never called it an act of terrorism. then the underwear bomber struck on christmas day. initially the president called him an isolated extremist. that's three strikes in six months. now there is trouble in the air. most americans will not stand for poor security. the obama administration has dismantled so many of the bush-cheney anti-terror programs, ones that worked, that the president finds himself in a very precarious situation. perception in many quarters that the obama admini
the obama administration because it continues to hold out the prospect that iran could sit down again with the five permanent members of the security council and continue negotiations. it is planning on what it knows to be the obama administration's real need to show some success with his so-called open hand policy and finally, by saying iran itself is prepared to cross the threshold of enrichment from reactor grade uranium up to very close to 20%, what the research reactor requires, they are justifying in their minds enrichment above the reactor grade level and i think that is significant because that opens all kinds of possibilities toward going all the way up to the real weapons-grade level of 90%-plus. >> eric: it is a threshold and line in the sand to potentially make a bomb? >> well, the scientific threshold is 20%. enriched uranium, and that is a very big bomb and inefficient and my point is once they go above the reactor grade level of 3 to 5% enrichment, they are showing they are going to ignore the idea that they are going to be limited solely to that typical measure and i t

used the federal courts and military commissions. under the obama administration we are using federal courts and military commissions. they are using the mckinley i will terri commissions for many -- they are using the military commissions for many people detained but they decided to use the federal courts for certain of the 9/11 perpetrators. >> chris: would you support $200 million for city in order to hold the trials. >> i don't think that we should make the very important judgment of whether it as military commission or a federal court based on dollars and cents. those are much more important considerations than that. we should clearly find the area where you don't have to spend as much for federal court versus another, you know, one in new york city versus some where else. i do believe if you look at the bush administration record they tried, we all know it is a matter of record, other of the 9/11 perpetrators, the 20th hijacker, the shoe bomber, these were all people tried in federal courts and all the obama administration has said is we will pick the venue which most likely res

. obama administration officials tell nbc news the trial for the mastermind cleek shaikh mohammed will be moved out of manhattan. joining me live, james gordon meek with the "new york daily news." >> how are you? >> great. hope you are, too. what you've learned about these details from your sources. what are they telling you? >> well, obviously, there has been extraordinary set of events. you know, these trials for the 9/11 conspirators namely the mastermind of the attacks who killed 3,000 americans, khalid shaikh mohammed, was announced last year. a couple months ago, by attorney general eric holder, and there were republican complaints about how these should -- these guys should have been put in a military commission instead of a federal civilian courthouse for a federal civilian trial in lower manhattan, but it seemed like it was clear sailing. justice department officials felt pretty good about it. all of a sudden last week mayor michael bloomberg of new york came out and said you know, the costs could be up to a billion dollars for the security, and there could be a big impac
, the obama administration reconsidering the plan to hold the 9/11 trials here in new york city. the white house has faced strong political opposition since heinousing it would try self-proclaimed 9/11 mastermind khalid sheikh mohammed and four accomplices steps from the world trade center site. then this week, new york city mayor michael bloomberg who to originally supported the plan asked the president to rethink it, saying the trial would cost the city $200 million a year. meantime, sources tell fox news president obama plans to include funding for the trials in his new budget proposal due out monday. but now it's a question whether the trials will even take place in manhattan after all. and there's already talk of other possible venues, including one town whose mayor wants the trials to bring it publicity. molly henneberg live in washington with the latest. hi, molly. >> reporter: hi, julie. the obama administration tells fox no final decision has been made about where to try khalid sheikh mohammed and four others so new york city is still technically an option, but maybe not for long.
. >> and of course, mark, the obama administration must have known about all of these changes and about what was to come here. at first they said they were just trying to keep people calm. and then the response ramped up after that. and all of these changes got into place. what are you hearing, if anything, from the administration about the handling of all of this and the timing? >> well, i mean, look, these changes wouldn't have gone into effect without the white house saying put them in effect. this has to do with security. there's no question about that. and they feel that by taking these steps that, you know, they are providing a sense of security to americans who are on these airplanes or anyone who's coming from these nations. at the same time, though, it is all about trying to make americans feel more comfortable about the situation. i think it's fair to say that the situation in the first couple days was mishandled by the administration. don, the fact is they didn't react quick enough. they tried to downplay it. by downplaying it they were criticized. but at this point right now i th
